A new feature this year at the Cosmic Children Festival is the Creators and Innovators Shred Your Shape by Vissla. A new division which invites Pro Shapers to show what they can do on their own craft in their own surf event. Already confirmed are international shapers from around Europe and abroad such as Donald Brink (California), Taz Yassin (Canary Islands), Christian Bradley (Australia/France), Mark Phipps (Australia/France) Phil Grace (Australia/France) , Damien Marly (France), Kinich Ahau (Spain), Kike Panera (Spain), Marcus Lascelles (England) and Matia Zulberti (Italy), to name just a few with more to come.These Creators & Innovators will ride a craft they shaped themselves inspired by the late 60’s to 90’s time period and will be judged on a mix of performance and style with cash prizes.
The Amateur Shred Your Shape event will be open to anyone that has ever shaped a surfboard, with the only condition being that you must ride your own board. If you have ever shaped a board, come on down and show us what you can do on it! If you have made at least 50% of the board you surf, you are welcome to enter. There will also be a Creators & Innovators tent where you can demo boards from Donald Brink, Taz, Matia Zulberti and many others.
